A Panic Button enables organizations to act quickly and minimize threats when an unexpected event occurs. It works by triggering a full-screen emergency alert to employees' computer screens, mobile devices, and large display screens.

The unmissable solution saves valuable time during an emergency with high exposure formats that are easy to read and understand.

Quick And Easy To Use


At the press of a button from your phone or computer (using the SnapComms app), those first at the scene can publish an urgent message directly from their mobile or desktop App, targeted to any employees at risk.

You can immediately initiate a company-wide announcement, alerting staff, and providing instructions, without delay.

Are You OK?


Designed specifically to be used during emergencies to alert individuals about a dangerous situation, you can request staff to confirm they are OK - for example, during a severe weather event or active shooter incident.

Up To The Minute Report
